Mississippi interim senator Cindy Hyde-Smith is coming under scrutiny for her business relationship with Umesh Sanjanwala, the father of a Hillary Clinton consultant. Records reveal that Hyde-Smith and Sanjanwala owned a failed business and a domain name Journey2Heaven.com, which previously hosted occult-themed services for communicating with the dead.
Sanjanwala is a major donor to Hyde-Smith’s political career, having worked under her during Hyde-Smith’s stint as Mississippi agriculture commissioner. Hyde-Smith’s link to Sanjanwala is reminiscent of former DNC chairwoman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz’s employment of IT aide Imran Awan. Hyde-Smith is trying to defend the seat she was appointed to against insurgent conservative state senator Chris McDaniel.
Sanjanwala donated more than $57,000 to Hyde-Smith’s agriculture commissioner campaign over a period of six months.
As of 2014, one of Hyde-Smith and Sanjanwala’s projects was Journey2Heaven.com, for which Hyde-Smith was officially listed as a manager of the company.
The company never got off the ground with Hyde-Smith and Sanjanwala at the helm. Hyde-Smith tested her “online ministry” out at a Baptist church in 2017, which she hoped could serve as a “pilot” church for her company. The website never went live with Hyde-Smith’s visions.
Interestingly, the domain Journey2Heaven.com was previously occupied by a company specializing in communicating with the dead through occult rituals, and promoted an event by hypnotherapist “Reverend” Liz Bright Leon. Hyde-Smith’s campaign did not immediately return a request for comment for this report.
Here is Umesh Sanjanwala’s daughter Sital Sigh, who has worked for Chisolm Strategies and Mabus Strategies, giving the middle finger in front of a profane graffiti rebuke to President Donald Trump, courtesy of Instagram. That post has now been deleted following a Big League Politics expose on Sanjanwala’s daughter.
Fortunately, Big League Politics saved the image in its original version and also in this version edited to block the profanity that Sanjanwala’s daughter is directing at President Donald Trump:
Here she is posting Hillary Clinton’s logo on her Instagram and saying that 2016 will be her final election as a campaign consultant.
She wrote on Instagram: “I’m not sure why you’re laughing at this. Is it because this job is ending for me? Or is it “your guy” won and “my guy” lost? If it’s the latter, then you deeply misunderstand what this election meant for many of us, and I’m very offended. I’ve always respected your political views, even though they largely were different from my own. If you’re laughing because you don’t respect my views, then we need to have a frank discussion. If you’re laughing because Hillary is a loser, then you don’t respect the place millions of Americans are coming from with this election. It’s not an “anti republican” sentiment. And if you can’t get that, please refrain from commenting on my posts.”
Cindy Hyde-Smith must answer to this relationship if she wishes to position herself as a genuine Republican — though she was previously a Democrat who voted for Hillary Clinton for president in 2008.
Cindy Hyde-Smith worked for the pro-Obamacare lobbying firm the National Coalition on Health Care.
The Coalition is comprised of member chapters including the AFL-CIO union and the pro-Obamacare AARP, the National Council of La Raza, and the NAACP.
Hyde-Smith is a former Democrat who voted for Hillary Clinton for president in 2008, a top Democratic leader confirms. She is now running in November’s Mississippi Senate race to try to keep her seat against challenger Chris McDaniel, a conservative state senator.
But Hyde-Smith’s lobbying work will inevitably haunt her, just as her Democratic Party past is already ruffling the feathers of conservative Mississippi voters.
Here’s an August 22, 1999 ad from the Clarion-Ledger identifying Hyde-Smith as a lobbyist for the National Coalition on Health Care.
